The Department of Labor has proposed delaying the implementation of the Obama-era "fiduciary responsibility" rule, which mandates that retirement fund advisors put their customers' interests before their own. You'd think those advisors would already have to do that, but the Obama Administration had to issue a rule telling them to do it -- and here comes the Trump Administration to get rid of it, because REGULASHUNZ BAD!!!!! Other haters claim that making pension fund advisors do their job according to the values of a civilized society will reduce the number of retirement investment advisors, but you'd think right-wingers would have faith in the ability of these advisors to adapt to having to think about what's best for someone other than themselves. Luckily, the Department of Labor must, by law, take public comments about the issue before moving forward with it, so Americans for Financial Reform helps you tell the Labor Department to implement the retirement fund rule without delay, as anyone with any Goddamn common sense would do.
Meanwhile, Josmar Trujillo at FAIR catches the New York Daily News editorial board declaring that "broken windows" policing absolutely positively works and if it leads to deportations of undocumented immigrants, then "too bad." You might well be thinking that "broken windows" policing -- which holds that if you aggressively go after"quality of life" crimes (like broken windows), you'll also hold down more serious crimes -- sounds about as scientific as the notion that tax cuts for the rich will trickle down to everyone else, and if you are thinking that, well, the data compiled over two decades doesn't exactly refute you. Mr. Trujillo argues his points extraordinarily well; even when he concedes that the Daily News hasn't been monolithically pro-"broken windows" policing over the years, of course that fact only makes their recent aggressive defense thereof more mind-boggling. The link above will help you contact the Daily News and ask that they provide some evidence that "broken windows" policing actually works.
